You say that prior to Jnana there has to be Jignasa
Jignasa is not talking about vedanta by shunning sadAchAra & swadharma.
Among the ladder of sapta bhUmikAs, the first rung is shubhEccha. This shubhEccha
germinates vairAgya. This vairAgya should be strengthened with vedanta vichara.
This paves the way for 2nd rung called vichAraNa. Followed by tanumAnasaH,
sattvApattiH, asaMsakti, padArtha bhAvana, turyagaH.
To climb the 1st rung in this ladder itself, one should be equipped with sAdhana chatuShTaya.
So, it is upto themselves to introspect where do they stand in terms of jnAna mArga.
